Washington, D.C., September 20, 2019 – Alliance for Justice President Nan Aron released the following statement today in response to passage of the Forced Arbitration Injustice Repeal Act (FAIR Act) by the United States House:

“The passage of the FAIR Act by the full House is a victory for consumers, workers, and small businesses across the country. For too long, forced arbitration clauses have allowed corporations to sweep their misconduct under the rug and stripped individuals of their right to seek justice through the courts and fight back against wage theft, sexual harassment, discrimination, unsafe working conditions, and other wrongdoings. We’re calling on the Senate to pass the FAIR Act and stand up for the millions of people across the country unable to properly enforce fundamental legal rights.”
